Speaking about the concert, Joseph Calleja said: “I always look forward to this event, where I perform together with several of our scholars. I am thrilled, particularly this year, that the concert is being hosted at the Teatru Manoel, and I am convinced that with the repertoire we are putting together this will be an intimate event and an unforgettable experience for our benefactors.”
Patrons attending will also be invited to a reception to which Joseph Calleja and the accompanying artists will be attending.The reception will be held at the Casino Maltese and will commence right after the concert.
